Bio:
While studying at UNH, Tricia went on a NOLS semester in Patagonia that changed her life. She was not only exposed to the harsh elements on extended sea-kayaking and mountaineering expeditions, but the magic that comes from living in nature with community. Driven to be a part of and create these transformative experiences for others, Tricia went on to guide groups of students with Windsor Mountain, Global Routes, True North and NOLS before finding her perfect fit with Kroka Expeditions.

Tricia joined the Kroka team in 2018 and has worked as the school program coordinator, interim food manager and has coordinated and led the Fall Semester Program since 2020.

Favorite Things About Kroka: The thought, care, love, intention that goes into EVERYTHING at Kroka. The community of supportive, creative, passionate staff. Raw milk & yogurt, pressing cider, skiing on winter lunch breaks, exploring wild places together. The students and children that fill this place with JOY!

Personal Passions: Wildflowers, swimming in alpine lakes, laughter with co-leaders 100 days into semester, learning about plant spirits, all the magical seasons of New England, learning new crafts, mountain biking, a cup of tea by the fire, making a beautiful meal with loved ones
